Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?
Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

    I have a feeling that 'Evan' and Michael are not full brothers. Going onto your theory about Henry being the father of 'Evan' (which i very much enjoyed btw) made alot of sense but however would a brother kill another brother without feeling upset about it? (Bite of 83) Michael puts Evans head into freddy and when the accident happens he doesn't seem to show being upset about it perhaps they are half brothers one whos father is Henry (Evan) and the others purple guy (Michael) it would make alot of sense then for the two half brothers to hate each other and for the story to line up

  • Faded_Jxmie

    The real question now is, where did they get the name Chris, and how? We need to solve 😌

    guys just call him chris until scott reveals his name

  • MagicArtist3163

    His name is Gregory they reveal this in the fnaf security breach trailor if you look closely you can see the grey lines on his shirt just like the one from the mini game everything seems to match except for the fact that the crying child is dead "or im stupid and you play as him in fnaf4"

    13:45 “he’s intense about making money, and he’s really good at it” Flashback to that one theory where Scott is purple guy because of family pictures on the fnaf 4 hallway wall. I think MattPat made it not sure though Scott = Michael. But that’s just a theory, A GAME THEORY aaaand cut I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if they tell us what his job is

    wasn't the crying child micheal afton, and thats why william afon made him a robot, and why he didn't die to the scooper but thr fire

    The crying child is actually Gregory from Security Breach because in the new trailer it shows Gregory looking at monitors and if u look closely u see that on the back of Gregory are 2 grey lines exactly how the crying child has on his back

    The crying childs not named Evan. I have a way. We need to read all of the fnaf books at once then after we finish one, we write notes about it. When we're done, we compare and contrast them. See what pops up mat. You'd be surprised.

  • Fabiangamers42

    But both name has no end like Chris and Evan. So far for Evan we cant connect the N to Eva, Crying Child contains the letter c h r i but no s so i guess instead of crying child call it mysterious last alphabet (mla)

    In the trailer of Security Breach we can see that the main character 'Gregory' wears the same shirt as the crying child and the security guard has blond hair and green eyes,just like Elizabeth Afton.

      But i think Elizabeth had Orange hair-

  • Fabiangamers42

    Gacha community: Its not evan its chris and he date nightmare "We dont do that here"

    • Exotic

      @Fabiangamers42 exacly! Like ennard X Michael- Its just, no.

    • Fabiangamers42

      @Exotic ikr its disgusting plus the mike ennard like bro you fandoms are shipping enemies with enemies

    • Exotic

      @Fabiangamers42 i Uh- i was Talking about how this ship between "Chris" and nightmare is disgusting- XD

    • Fabiangamers42

      @Exotic but something to notice, in Crying Child, there are c h r i but no s, in foxy grid, we found Eva, but no n so i mean both name could be connected

    I think there's another way to prove that two people are in golden freddy first Cassidy they want afton to suffer while evan(or crying child)has no anger towards afton so that explains fnaf7 or ultimate custom night for afton's heck. Next evan in fnaf7 Cassidy doesn't know fnaf 4 while evan is the only one to suffer from it so Cassidy doesn't need to have fnaf4 animatronics (or know) unless evan told Cassidy. So that was my theory thanks for your time btw I'm tried doing this at 12:32 so there might be mistakes bye.

    3 things in can put together 1 Evan is michaels big brother 2 the doll and the kid with a teumur relate to fnaf4 story. 3 confirmation that milliam afton did set cameras and sound discs and illusions discs for Michael afton, this due to the fact that walkie talkies were in the hospital cabinet, this is relateable to how the nightmare animatronics not being real and just michaels dad behind the control of the room where Michael was in fnaf 4.

    that it i had it and I mean nothing against you matpat it's just I had enough. your theories used to be entertaining for me but I doubt the time and had my own opinions on them but they were still good videos but some of the community has taken that little too far using your theories as evidence for everything fnaf now why that's bad it's not because I hate your videos no but it's the people who keep telling me and others that everything you have said is true and not doubt it they also said if you believe in other opinions are theories that you are not a fan of the series itself even though that i have being a fan of the series ever since it came out I shared my opinion at first it was fine in the beginning people just question me and I gave them their answers and I was being polite about that too but as a continue on instead of questions and being polite back they criticize me and not in the good way they started out saying I'm wrong this is that and that is this and I answered them back politely how I believe how this is that in this is that but they did not care as we kept going they kept growing meaner and meaner and growing more toxic and not just toxic to me but toxic to a different group of people in the community just because they have slightly different theories than yours I am not going to repeat anything they said nor say any of their names. they just kept getting angrier and angry are because I do not bend the knee to them know it's not your fault nor your theories but this toxic group in the community has placed your theories on the a pedestal and if anyone disagrees the toxic group considers them non-fans I'm trying to chase them out and they do not care who the person is even if there are new fan or an old fan I have been meaning to comment on one of your videos I had to build up the courage to I promised myself the next video you do on the series I will finally speak my mind and I am sorry for this long comments it's just I had to finally say something about this as my new saying goes believe what you want to believe and I'll believe what I want to believe.

    I think the crying child name is GREGORY because if you go to the trailer you will se a kid with some lines on his shirt , and that makes sense why animatronics want to hunt him because he is GREGORY AFTON they want to kill all the members from the AFTON familiy , this is only my theory.
